Our clients are seeing a dramatic increase in user engagement (from 19 or 20% up to 80%) because they are using the D2® platform to support their OD strategy and are making learning relevant to their people. This means they can provide the workforce with information that is pertinent to them, and influence each individual’s learning path by getting them in touch with resources that are effective and useful to them in their particular role.
TWM’s unique VODE® concept has generated considerable interest from L&D Professionals. The VODE® is now an online tool, widely used by TWM’s client base when they’re thinking about their L&D strategy and how it aligns with the wider OD strategy of their organisation and their organisation’s goals.
The VODE® is a graphic representational diagram which aims to answer one clear question: “As an L&D professional, how can I optimise the learning technologies that I have, with the content that I use, to improve organisational performance?” Bearing in mind the flexibility of the VODE® solution the question should also include a reference to the learning technology that you will have in the future as well!
L&D and driving the business case are inextricably linked. There is no point in developing people in your organisation unless there is clear alignment between that development and your organisation’s goals. To strengthen this link you need a platform that is capable of measurement.
How can I use the VODE?
The VODE® is a diagram. It offers a means of understanding how you might view your organisation’s current set up and how it might change going forward. It is, if you like, an ideal planning forum. It is designed to help you think clearly about the business benefits a given initiative might offer and how they might link to other initiatives. You can think about your own VODE® and plan one here and now online.
Central to the concept of a VODE® is the idea that when you move away from the VODE® diagram into the reality of your organisational solution you will provide a single login to access as many of the elements of the VODE® as possible.
The concept harnesses the power of integration. Instead of multiple applications all requiring separate logins and access points, why not bring your multiple existing applications and systems together, behind one single interface. One single login to a single interface helps ensure that people performance and organisational goals are aligned and tracked seamlessly.
